I predict the first sub-10,000 crowd at the DW for a regular league fixture since about 2003.

Season Tickets will have to be cut in price by about 30% to maintain the number this year.

I'd like to predict the part-time hooker MM being nowhere near the starting 13, but I doubt that'll happen.

Is like to predict the names below all being shown the door, but it won't happen :
Wane
Gelling
Powell
FPN
Leuluai
Flower
Sutton
J Tomkins
Isa
I know not everyone will agree with the above, so nows your chance to put up your "wish list" so to speak

We'll be under the pump and doing it tough, the team will be hurting because these aren't Wigan performances.
We'll be in the wrestle pit Monday morning working on our technique but we'll be okay when we get some bodies back.

Under a decent coach/coaching system Powell, Sutton and Gelling could be great players. Agree with the rest though. MM would be out the door before Powell for me.

Bit harsh on Powell. Sutton will never be big enough to be starting prop at Wigan.

After thinking about it yeah I think Powell does deserve another chance, mcilorum doesn't offer a great deal anymore other than intimidation

He needs more weight for sure. Unfortunately our props are conditioned for fitness (lol) and mobility. But why do you think he will never be big enough?

I wonder what the record for crossing the try line without scoring is because Sutton must have beaten it

The only ones I disagree with there are Powell & Sutton. But then I would add TT
